Huddle Up: His rushing ability gives him QB1 upside whenever he does have the chance to start, but Jackson will ultimately have to prove he can deliver from the pocket if he is going to be successful. In the meantime, he is a must-own option in keeper formats.

Huddle Up: Jackson made some plays with his legs but was inconsistent as a passer. He isn't a lock to contribute in redraft leagues this year, but he has QB1 upside because of his rushing ability and is a must-own option in keeper formats.

Huddle Up: ESPN's Jamison Hensley reports Jackson has already moved ahead of Robert Griffin III on the depth chart. Joe Flacco isn't in any immediate danger of losing his starting job, but Jackson's name will come up throughout the season anytime he has a bad game or two. The rookie is a great best-ball lottery ticket and has QB1 upside if he manages to become the starter at some point in 2018.

Huddle Up: Jackson will probably need an injury to Joe Flacco to make a significant impact in redraft leagues this year, but his Michael Vick-like skills make him a must-own option in keeper formats.

Huddle Up: Flacco has to be a little miffed that his career-long franchise used their first-round pick on a fellow quarterback. Flacco's job is in trouble, but he was never a reliable fantasy asset anyway. He can be avoided in traditional leagues.

Huddle Up: Jackson may have a small package of plays he runs this season, but he's not taking Joe Flacco's job this year. Still, his long- term potential as a dual-threat quarterback make him worth rostering in keeper leagues and dynasty formats.

Huddle Up: Jackson likely will spend his rookie season as the No. 2 quarterback for the Ravens but could start as soon as 2019. He will be a popular pick in keeper leagues but will not have a lot of value in standard leagues.

Huddle Up: According to Trotter, the plan with Jackson is to start at ground zero and throw everything at him to see what he does well and what they need to focus on. It makes sense, as Joe Flacco is a serviceable quarterback. Whenever Jackson becomes the starter - most likely 2019 - he should be considered a potential QB1 in fantasy given his incredible ability as a runner. As for 2018, he may possess more fantasy upside than any other backup quarterback.

Huddle Up: Jackson should sit behind Joe Flacco for at least one season but will be the quarterback of the future for the Ravens. He can be avoided in standard leagues this season but will be an option in keeper leagues.

Huddle Up: Jackson's offseason has been unique to say the least. At the NFL Combine, some teams reportedly wanted him to try out at receiver. NFL teams have supposedly had trouble reaching him to schedule interviews over the last two months and his choice to not work with an agent has led to some curious choices regarding his workouts. Nevertheless, Jackson will very much be worth grabbing in dynasty leagues regardless of his landing spot.
